At today's Advocate Development meeting, I learned about D.A.R.E. (Direct Action for Rights and Equality) and the work they do within local communities often in south-side Providence. They are very effective at organizing movements to enact social change, especially focusing on issues that local communities care about. Another reason I found DARE very impressive is that they train community leaders; rather than centralizing an issue, they enable individual community members to become leaders on issues they care about.
